Pear 'Red William'

Pyrus communis

Pear 'Red William' is a wonderful red version of one of the most popular pear varieties in the world. This red 'clone' is just as sweet as the original William's pear but with the added attraction of red skin and being slightly more dwarf than Pear 'Williams Bon Chretien'.


Grafted onto 'Quince A' rootstock to produce a tree with moderate vigour and promote fruiting at an early age. These strong growing trees are partially self-fertile but make the ideal planting partner for Conference or Concorde to aid pollination and increase the yield. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread: 3m (9').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 6 years.

Apple 'Tydemans Late Orange'

Malus domestica

A popular cross between 'Laxton's Superb' and 'Cox's Orange Pippin', producing Cox-style apples with a later season and sharper flavour.

Malus domestica

A superb RHS AGM variety that makes a fantastic cooking apple and a delicious dessert apple too!

Grafted onto a semi dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of 'James Grieve' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit.

If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Height and spread: 3m (10') Rootstock: M26.

Crab Apple 'Royalty'

Malus

A particularly attractive tree, Crab Apple 'Royalty' is unmistakeable for its dark mahogany foliage that turns to scarlet in Autumn. The deep pink springtime apple blossom is followed by dark red fruits that make a fabulous crab apple jelly. Any unpicked fruits will soften after a few frosts to create a sumptuous food source for wild birds. Crab apples are self fertile and if planted near orchard apple trees make excellent pollinators. Rootstock: M6. Height and spread: 3m (10').

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.

Apple 'Croquella'

Malus domestica, Patio fruit tree

The naturally dwarf habit of Apple 'Croquella' makes this French variety perfect for growing in containers. Good crops of bright red apples with crisp white flesh can be harvested from September onwards. This compact apple tree takes on a rather oriental appearance as it ages which forms a particularly attractive patio fruit tree.


Apple 'Croquella' is partially self-fertile, but for the heaviest crops it is best grown with another variety to ensure good pollination. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Height and spread: 120cm (48"). Rootstock: Pajam 9.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.
